In another column is given a recent vote of the faculty, with regard to special students. That our university should give such facilities as it does for special study seems perfectly just, and is, in fact, one of the most admirable points in our system. But that this admission into the ranks of student-life here has not been properly restricted, and that in some cases it has been grossly abused, must have become clear to most of the men who take any interest in college matters. The action of the faculty in putting the work of specials under careful supervision will not only greatly aid in accomplishing the objects of special study, but also keep out of our ranks the class of men who are either incompetent or too lazy to take entrance examinations, and who come here solely for the "life" and the name of being "Harvard men."
